"de meeste en de natuurlijkste beweegelijkheid"......
Thus sayeth Rembrandt Harmenszoon von Rijn. Our friends
at Wikipedia translate that as " 'the greatest and most natural
movement' although the word 'beweechgelickhijt' is also
argued to mean 'emotion' or 'motive.' Whether this refers to
objectives, material or otherwise is open to interpretation;
either way, Rembrandt seamlessly melded the earthly and
spiritual as has no other painter in Western art."
I am not an art critic, so I will take their word for it.
Rembrandt (July 15, 1606-October 4, 1669) is the
pre-eminent Dutch painter, etcher, and art teacher.
Had the good fortune to see some of his paintings during
a visit the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam in the winter of 1972.
His greatness was palpable, even to this novice.
